Over four lakh jobs were created in firms with 10 or more workers in nine selected sectors in October-December 2021, according to the Labour and Employment Ministry’s third Quarterly Employment Survey (QES) report released on Thursday.

The Ministry’s establishment-based survey, which covered 10,834 units in the third round, found employment had increased from 3.10 crore in July-September 2021 to 3.145 crore in the next quarter. The survey covered manufacturing, construction, trade, transport, education, health, accommodation and restaurants, IT/BPOs and financial services that accounted for 85% of the employment in units with 10 or more workers, the report said. The survey does not include units that were established after 2013-2014.

The manufacturing sector accounted for 39% of the units, followed by education (22%). Overall 23.55% of the units provided on-the-job training to workers, while the number was higher for health sector units (34.87%). At the same time, the nine sectors reported 1.85 lakh vacancies, with 81,846 in manufacturing, 47,076 in health and 39,014 in education. The report stated that 86.5% of the vacancies were “in the process of being filled up”. About 4% of the vacancies remained due to “non-availability of requisite skilled workers”.

Releasing the findings, Labour and Employment Minister Bhupender Yadav said in a tweet that the the third round report of QES had shown “a rising trend in employment in organised sector”.
